#139: Rebels host Bulldogs on baseball diamond – 05/09/19
Ole Miss and Mississippi State have a big baseball series this weekend in Oxford. On this episode, Parrish and Logan preview the rivalry series. MSU is in good position to secure a national seed for the NCAA tournament (3:45), while Ole Miss still has some work to do in that regard. But the Rebels are in good shape, especially after a big series win at LSU last weekend. Logan takes a look at MSU’s remaining schedule (12:26), plus the guys discuss the dominance of the Bulldogs’ ace, Ethan Small (14:56), and how the Ole Miss hitters might try to attack him. There’s a bit of softball talk today, too (2:08). The post #139: Rebels host Bulldogs on baseball diamond – 05/09/19 appeared first on Double Coverage.

#138: Not much to learn from spring football games – 04/11/19
As spring football comes to an end, Parrish and Logan say there hasn’t been a whole lot learned about either Ole Miss or Mississippi State. The Rebels held their annual Grove Bowl last Saturday (5:37), but coaches didn’t reveal too much on offense, which is now run by Rich Rodgriguez. Parrish said running back D’Vaughn Pennamon, who’s returning from a knee injury, looked solid, as did quarterback Matt Corral. And the defense, which was one of the worst in the country last season, seems improved. MSU will hold its spring game this weekend (2:17). But like Ole Miss, the Bulldogs probably won’t show too much. In fact, Logan says it could be more of a situational scrimmage. As for what he knows about this team, the defensive line has some big pieces to replace (14:00). On the baseball diamond, MSU’s offense continues to roll along (16:46) heading into this weekend’s series against Alabama. One concern is the health of pitcher J.T. Ginn, who will try to throw Saturday. Ole Miss is also hitting the ball well (21:52), and it’s riding the momentum of a sweep of Florida and a mid-week win against Southern Miss.

#137: Bulldogs go West; Grove Bowl preview – 04/05/19
Parrish and Logan are back, and they have a lot to talk about. Logan recaps his trips out West, where he followed the MSU men’s and women’s basketball teams in the NCAA tournament (6:43). The men fell in the first round, and now the question is who will return next season. As for the women, their bid for a third-straight Final Four berth was denied by Oregon, but the future looks bright for Vic Schaefer’s team. Parrish has some Ole Miss basketball news, with both coaches receiving contract extensions and men’s coach Kermit Davis receiving a raise as well (3:39). Davis also recently picked up a big commitment from an Arizona forward (5:20). There is some football to discuss, as Ole Miss readies for the annual Grove Bowl on Saturday (22:05). Parrish said new offensive coordinator Rich Rodriguez plans to keep things “vanilla” with so many eyeballs watching. In examining RichRod’s schemes, Parrish said the offensive line will be key to its success. On the baseball diamond, the Rebels got an SEC series win at Arkansas last weekend, then suffered a head-scratching loss to Division I newcomer North Alabama (13:26). Up next is a series against Florida. MSU will try to bounce back from a series loss to LSU when it travels to Tennessee this weekend (18:21).

#135: Rebels open spring drills; Bulldogs safely in tournament? – 02/28/19
Welcome to crossover season. Basketball’s regular season is in the home stretch, baseball has begun, and now it’s time for spring football. Ole Miss opened spring drills this week (2:03) and began the process of installing new systems on both sides of the ball. Offensively, new coordinator Rich Rodriguez will emphasize the run game, and he’ll have several options at running back. On the basketball court, MSU is on a roll (8:00), and coach Ben Howland believes its nine SEC wins are enough to secure a berth in the NCAA tournament. The Bulldogs have been winning without Nick Weatherspoon, who remains indefinitely suspended, and Tyson Carter has filled in nicely. Two tough games are coming up, though, with road trips to Auburn and Tennessee. Speaking of the Volunteers, Ole Miss suffered a heartbreaking loss to the country’s No. 7-ranked team on Wednesday (13:26). The Rebels are 9-6 in SEC play and probably need to get to 10 wins to assure an NCAA bid. Both baseball teams have started strong. Ole Miss is 5-2 but has experienced a few pitching issues (17:45). This weekend, Long Beach State – which is off to an uncharacteristically bad start – visits Oxford. MSU, meanwhile, is 8-1 after taking two of three from Southern Miss and then earning a pair of blowout midweek wins (22:14). Pitcher Ethan Small is off to a roaring start, and he’ll lead the Bulldogs into this weekend’s Frisco Classic in Texas.

#134: NCAA tournament talk; baseball season begins – 02/21/19
‘Tis the season for solidifying NCAA tournament résumés, and that’s the big topic tackled today by Parrish and Logan (5:41). Ole Miss needs at least two more SEC wins, and maybe three, to find itself on the right side of the NCAA bubble. But there are no gimmes on the remaining schedule. As for MSU, all it has to to is avoid a late-season collapse. The Bulldogs dodged a bullet at Georgia on Wednesday (2:52), when a stuffed bulldog played a role in the game’s finish. Quinndary Weatherspoon scored a career-high 31 points in the win. On the women’s side, Ole Miss and State meet tonight in Oxford (15:40). The Rebels will try to take a page from Missouri’s playbook and limit Teaira McCowan, something that’s easier said than done. Baseball season began last weekend, with MSU breaking in its renovated stadium against Youngstown State (19:18). There was a lot of offense for the Bulldogs, who were led by Tanner Allen. The pitching was also strong, with Ethan Small and J.T. Ginn turning in quality starts. Ole Miss is 2-1 after a win over Arkansas State on Wednesday (23:00). Freshman phenom Gunnar Hugland had a shaky debut, but Parrish noted that two innings is a small sample size for someone who will be part of the weekend starting rotation.

#133: Basketball teams earn big wins – 02/14/19
The Mississippi State and Ole Miss men’s basketball teams both moved a little closer to earning NCAA tournament bids with big wins this past week. Logan recaps MSU’s win against Alabama (8:37), which had beaten the Bulldogs in the teams’ previous meeting. Quinndary Weatherspoon had another big outing, and coach Ben Howland said it was the most complete game his team has played during his tenure. Ole Miss beat Auburn for a second time (12:13), with the defense coming up huge. Parrish says the Rebels, currently 5-4 in SEC play, need to go 11-7 to solidify their postseason résumé. While basketball season enters the stretch run, baseball season cranks up this weekend. MSU hosts Youngstown State, and it will be the debut of new coach Chris Lemonis as well as the newly renovated Dudy Noble Field (16:08). Ole Miss, meanwhile, opens at home against Wright State (20:26). Also today, Parrish looks at what he calls the NCAA’s “toothless punishment” of the Ole Miss football program, which had to vacate several wins from the past few years (2:18).

#132: Signing day recap; Rebels get big win – 02/08/19
Ole Miss and Mississippi State wrapped up their 2019 football signing classes on Wednesday. While most signees inked back in December, both teams got some big pick-ups this week. Ole Miss bolstered its defense with players like LeDarrius Cox – a former Tennessee commit – and Lakia Henry, who is the country’s No. 1-rated juco inside linebacker (2:00). Matt Luke also snagged former Georgia commit John Rhys Plumlee, giving him four scholarship quarterbacks. And the biggest name was Jerrion Ealy, although the five-star running back might decide to play pro baseball instead. MSU, meanwhile, had a pretty quiet day with no real surprises (11:06). The Bulldogs signed eight, including four-star defensive tackle Nathan Pickering. On the basketball court, MSU lost a tough one in overtime to LSU on Wednesday (16:41), despite strong play from Quinndary Weatherspoon and Reggie Perry. Ole Miss broke out of a slump by beating Texas A&M (22:10), which certainly boosts the Rebels’ NCAA tournament hopes.

#131: Rematch in Oxford; worst calls recalled – 01/31/19
There’s a big rematch in Oxford on Saturday. The MSU and Ole Miss men meet again (11:56), with the Bulldogs seeking revenge for a loss at home the first go-round. Both teams have stumbled of late, with MSU struggling to make 3-pointers on the road. A possible culprit: The ball. Bigger issues, perhaps, include the recent disappearing act by big man Abdul Ado and a knee injury to starting guard Nick Weatherspoon. Ole Miss has lost four of its last five thanks in large part to its defensive struggles. That’ll need to be improved come Saturday, and it would help if Blake Hinson turned in the kind of performance he had in Starkville; he’s been very quiet since that game. Parrish and Logan also take a trip down memory lane today. Inspired by the much-maligned no-call in the NFC championship game, the guys look back at some of the controversial calls they’ve seen while covering their respective football programs (2:53). They also talk a bit of baseball. Logan looks at the Bulldogs’ weekend pitching rotation (24:05), while Parrish examines the Rebels’ second baseman competition (24:56).

#130: Bulldogs, Rebels fall on the road – 01/24/19
The Mississippi State and Ole Miss men’s basketball teams are both coming off tough road losses. On this episode, Logan looks at what went wrong for the Bulldogs at Kentucky (1:42). The 3-pointers wouldn’t fall, and Aric Holman’s struggles in the post continued. Up next is a big home game versus Auburn (12:12). The Rebels, meanwhile, weren’t very competitive at Alabama (6:54), and they will try to bounce back Saturday against Iowa State. On the women’s side, MSU was off Sunday and shouldn’t have much trouble with its next two opponents, Florida and Ole Miss (19:56), although the Rebels are playing much better lately (21:07). Spring football is right around the corner, as Ole Miss is set to start drills Feb. 28, with the Grove Bowl set for April 6 (14:23). Parrish examines the running back situation, with Eric Swinney looking to leave. As for MSU, it lost a couple of assistant coaches and has a couple of players in the NCAA transfer portal (17:31).
